Abstract
Here is the second of three compact (3⅞" x 5⅝") volumes boxed. This purchase was a random find on eBay of something I thought I was encountering for the first time. I see now that I have already a copy, but I keep to the practice of including second copies of numbered editions. The illustrations in each volume consist of a strong black-and-white illustration on the paperbound cover and duochrome endpieces about every three or four fables during the volume. The cover illustration here is of two roosters, presumably illustrating CJ. The endpieces here repeat the practice of covering several fables at once. Endpieces here include 2P (32); "Le petit Poisson et le Pecheur" (34); TH along with TT (59); and a combination endpiece that includes both "The Wagon Driver in the Mud" and "The Wagon and the Fly" (65 and 82). There is a T of C on 91-92. Not in Bodemann.
